Rear Spring Sag Only 3" which way to turn collar?
Posted January 17, 2008 - 08:03 PM
I just changed the springs front and rear (RaceTech). here is what I have.
Type of Riding: Desert / Enduro / Trail
Rider Weight: 215 lbs
Recommended Spring Rate: [COLOR="Red"]5.64[/COLOR] kg/mm (use closest available)
Stock Shock Spring Rate (measured): 5.3 kg/mm (stock)
Available SRSP 6228 Series Springs are:
SRSP 622856 RT SHK SPR 63.4x60.6x270 5.6kg
The spring I installed in the rear is a 622856 (stamped on it) which is perfect for my weight according to RaceTech
I installed the shock with the collar screwed to about where the stock spring was. I measured race sag and came up with 3 1/8 inches - I am striving for 4 1/8 inches, which is about 105mm sag. I unscrewed (raised) the collar which made the spring slightly longer, well my race sag is STILL 3 1/8" . How is this possible?? What am I missing?? I did the sag test with me on the pegs, sitting on the seat and even sitting back farther to no avail.... Any thoughts?

You have to set static sag first, then race sag, race sag is a cumulation of static sag + sag of rider on bike so if you're at 3-1/8" did you add the static sag or not - you might be closer than you think.

I.... Any thoughts?
i just put in the exact spring on my bike. as you know it needs to go counterclockwise or up the r spring thus lowering the seat. mine ended up at 3.5" but i just called it good.
im at 220.
